(Scroll down for video) An elderly man said that he has no regrets for killing a woman and her unborn baby.
The man of California, said that he did so in self-defense after the woman and her partner was stealing his money from his safe.
80-year-old Tom Greer, a homeowner in Long Beach, walked into his home to find the man and woman burglarizing his home.
Greer said that the couple jumped him, pushing him to the ground and breaking his collarbone. However, they were unarmed and allowed the man to watch as they tried to open his safe.
The male suspect demanded to know where Greer kept his tools so he can pry open the safe. Greer, who had about $15,000 cash in the safe, told the man to go downstairs to the basement where he kept all his tools.
The suspect went downstairs while his female partner in crime waited upstairs. Meanwhile, Greer slipped away and grabbed his gun.
When the couple saw the gun they ran out of the home. Greer ran after them and shot the woman. The man got away so he shot the woman a second time.
Greer said that the woman pleaded for her life and asked him not to shoot her because she was pregnant, but he killed her anyway, and has no regrets.
Greer said that he is a good Christian. However, these people had robbed him twice in the past and therefore, he needed to send them a strong message to stop them from coming back.
Authorities are still investigating the incident. Neither the male suspect nor Greer have been arrested.
